Meet your guide at the Anchorage Visitor Center prior to a 1:00 p.m. departure time. Board a comfortable vehicle for the scenic drive along the tidal flats of the Turnagain Arm, known for its abundant wildlife. Learn about the area from your guide as you look out for sightings of Dall sheep, beluga whales, and more in their natural environment.
Then, tour the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, which provides refuge for animals that cannot survive in the wild. See the 12 species of wild animals that the center currently provides care for, including wood bison, musk ox, and lynx.
After your visit, board a boat for a glacier cruise up to the face of Portage Glacier. Ride up to 300 feet (91 meters) from the glacier cliff for an up-close look at this massive wall of ice.
Return to Anchorage at the end of your tour.
